    Jake Sears (Richard Mulligan) – “I don’t like 53-card decks because I don’t run the kind of place where you need hip-boots to wade through the dead and wounded. It’s kind of bad for the carriage trade.” Alice Moffett (Elizabeth Taylor) – “Carriage trade?! If you had a carriage trade in this cultural desert you call a town, you couldn’t get them into this saloon if you served them water from the fountain of youth. Since it’s apparently preying on your mind, I’ll tell you. I’ve never shaved a deck, I’ve never marked an ace, I don’t deal from the bottom, and I have never double-discarded. When I sit in a poker game, I don’t cast shadows. I am too good to cheat.”
